Packed with EPA and DHA (essential fatty acids; Omega-3 FA), fish oil can produce many positive impacts on the dog’s overall health and well-being. The components alleviate and reduce inflammation in case of allergic dermatitis, hot spots and serious cases of dandruff. When using them the dog’s coat becomes shiny and healthier. They are also known to soothe arthritis and improve the dog’s memory. Fish oil can be given in the form of a pill or as liquid added to the food.
Similar to fish oil, coconut oil is known to reduce skin inflammation and promotes healthy hair growth. But the main purpose is to fix digestive issues your dog might be experiencing (ex. IBS). Stinky breath can also be reduced with coconut oil and make it a bit sweeter. If you want to select the perfect product, search for cold-pressed, virgin coconut oil.
Olive oil consumption improves the overall health of both humans and dogs. The longest life-span in people has been registered in people living on islands in the Mediterranean Sea that consume olive oil on daily basis. Except for the shiny and moisturized coat, by consuming olive oil the pet’s immune system and cardiovascular system will also improve. It’s a great substitute for dogs allergic to fish and fish oil and it’s really easy to find quality olive oil everywhere. When you go shopping search for 100% pure olive oil.
